Cool to be kind challenge
CBC has been showing a "cool to be kind" section each night on the late night news for the past week. It has really inspired me.
Looking at all that is going on around us with the economy, lay-offs and such I thought it would be neat to have our own "cool to be Kind" challenge for the next coming months. I've noticed people getting grumpier and grumpier and it seems that they've forgotten to smile. I think we can all make things better, even when it doesn't cost us money.
It's not to show off that we are better than anyone else, it's to try to make our world a better place. We can send a card, give a hug or a word of encouragement, send a pm to someone here. We can bring a tray of cookies to a neighbour or visit a nursing home. There are so many little things we can do to brighten someone's day and by doing so make our day even better. We don't have to mention names if we don't want too, there isn't a need for that. It's about being kind to others so that they in return might be kind to someone they know. It's about spreading happiness around even when we don't feel like it at times.
Anyone want to join in?
